ESCALANTE, Hugo Jair; SUCAR, Luis Enrique  and  MONTES-Y-GOMEZ, Manuel. Semantic Cohesion for Image Annotation and Retrieval. Comp. y Sist. [online]. 2012, vol.16, n.1, pp.121-125. ISSN 1405-5546.

We present methods for image annotation and retrieval based on semantic cohesion among terms. On the one hand, we propose a region labeling technique that assigns an image the label that maximizes an estimate of semantic cohesion among candidate labels associated to regions in segmented images. On the other hand, we propose document representation techniques based on semantic cohesion among multimodal terms that compose images. We report experimental results that show the effectiveness of the proposed techniques. Additionally, we describe an extension of a benchmark collection for evaluation of the proposed techniques.

Keywords : Automatic image annotation; region labeling; multimedia image retrieval; ground truth data creation.
